SEATON Town Council has announced it is formally against pay and display proposals in the town - fearing it would damage trade and tourism.
But, in a letter to Devon County Council, councillors said they could see some benefit to the scheme being implemented near the Co-op and Townsend surgery at Harepath Road.
Town clerk David Mears wrote: "The council is of the opinion that implementing such a scheme in Seaton could have huge adverse economic implications for the town, which will severely damage both trade and tourism."
He added that other towns would have an unfair advantage as they enjoyed free parking for longer.
